of what feels like here, bill. a lot of energy at the white house, a lot of curiosity surrounding this meeting. what you can't see from here and what i can't show you, unfortunately, is just about 50 yards from here is where you saw speaker boehner walking into the building, and we've got a whole cadre of white house still press photographers up on ladders peering over the hedge trying to get a picture of the leaders as they walk in and just to the left of that crowd is another crowd of reporters all gathered around the stakeout cameras. that's where the leaders could come out and talk to microphones if they wanted to say anything after this meeting. there's a lot of anticipation of whether they will say anything after this meeting, and it's widely seen that this would be a good sign for negotiations if they do come out and talk. a lot of previous white house meetings, they have not come out to say anything afterwards, so all those folks waiting over there might be waiting in vain here at this point, but at this point we know most of the major leaders are in the building, and we'l

as mohammad mentioned this morning. energy costs in terms of natural gas are down. china is reinstituting fiscal stimulation and japan is on the move in terms of easier money. all that is a positive, but we have come to expect in the asset markets a 10%-plus type of return for taking equity risk. and really if the real economy only grows at 2% to 3%, it is a case of spending straw into gold and how long that will continue. a 5% return from stocks, 2% to 3% from bonds is something we should expect going forward even with the pluses that you mentioned. >> what about your outlook for gold? your outlook is that gold is going to move higher in 2013, and i would assume that's because you know the fed will be in the house. >> we think gold will move higher as will commodities. it is hard to say exactly how much. gold to my way of thinking is a function of real interest rates to the extend real interest rates continue low and even come lower than gold can catch a bid, but ultimately it's an asset that depends on inflation to the extent that the fed and other central banks can replate the economy.

market. over the last tlie months you see negative pressure on earnings. that's led by energy sector and stocks. ex-financials. and what's also giving us a bit of pause heading into 2013 is the fact that these expectations are calling for about a 7% increase in earnings for next year which may not seem heroic on the surface, but it is a reacceleration from the 5% that we're going to post most likely in 2012. >> you have to think about fundamentals then. >> yeah. i'm worried a bit about that and the fact we're probably going to see a reset in earnings estimates in the next three or four weeks. because these negotiations, we're going to get some closure and resolution. it's still going to be a 1%, 1.5% fiscal drag. that's going to be an impact on earnings heading into 2013. >> rick santelli, what do you make of the reporting that john harwood just came out with a moment ago? what do you think that means? >> well, i found it a little bit curious. because here we are with mitch mcconnell and the vice president trying to work this out from a senate perspective. and the story is the house

deductions and credits from the stimulus bill, on clean energy, wind energy, education tax credits would be preserved under this deal. unemployment benefits extended for a year. there would be a doc fix. that is preventing doctors who work under medicare from having their reimbursements dramatically cut and you've had a fix to the alternative minimum tax, protecting tens of millions of families from a huge increase in their tax bill based on some provision that was originally intended only to hit people at the top. that's what we know so far but there's still elements in play and democrats have not yet scheduled a caucus meeting in the senate to sell this deal to their members. when they do that, you can expect vice president biden to go to the hill, talk to democrats, try to persuade them to vote for this. >> you mentioned in the biden/mcconnell talks, a couple of sticking points. one is the sequestering. what was the second one? >> well, there's disagreements over the estate tax. there's disagreements over the, how to pay for and whether to pay for the so-called doc fix. there's a whol

they will end up with, windmill subsidies. windmills have failed terribly. it is more expensive to get energy from windmills today than it was $24 billion, 20 years ago when the subsidies began. we agreed to spend more money, another year of spending on windmills. >> that's right. i looked at this at each of the budget items we have increased over the past few years and if you look at it specifically, virtually every agency has had a significant increase in the size of their budget and again, i think is not a stimulus issue. this is really a desire of the president and the, president's party to grow the size of government. this is something they have wanted to do for a long time. and, 2009-2010 was their opportunity to do it and they did it. so that is kind of where we are right now. the question then is, what do we do from here on? i think there are plenty of things we can do. not to say they won't get done. david: talk about what is realistic what is getting done. president also said yesterday, i'm quoting him here, you will not cut your way to prosperity. i guess he believes the government
